1. Not telling the truth; lying. 2. Based on lies.

At the young, naive age of twenty-three, Alex Lewis believed in the deepness of his love and the strength of his marriage to, Libby, his teenage sweetheart. Married for three years, but struggling financially to keep a roof over their heads, Alex thought his wife would stand by him till the bitter end. But she didn’t. His world crashed down around him.

Fast forward seven years, we meet Alex Lewis again. In the time since his divorce, he has matured significantly. Now the founder and domineering CEO of A L Investments, a multimillion-pound Investment and Management Company, he couldn’t be more different. The high-flying career he has managed to carve conceals a raw and vulnerable side just under the surface. The scars from his ill-fated marriage run deep, leaving him distant, cold, and alone.

So when his path with Libby crosses and an opportunity for revenge presents itself, Alex jumps at the offer. His mind is determined to make Libby feel the pain he has suffered over the last seven years… but his heart and conscience are fiercely battling against him.

The love of his life is back once again, but who can win in this mendacious game of revenge.

my review

4 Stars

Mendacious is an angst filled suspense novel with all kinds of twists and turns that keep you turning page after page. It’s also a love story. An imperfect and busted up love story but it’s one you’ll be devouring nonetheless.

For seven years nothing has been right in either Alex or Libby’s worlds except for maybe their careers. The people closest to them have had enough and set into motion a crazy plan to commit the ultimate revenge.  Destroy what they seem to value most – their financial security and reputations.

Except the jokes everyone because you really can’t deny the love and affection between soulmates. No matter how angry they are at another.  Passion erupts and is undeniable with these two.  You’ll love it.

I thought this book was witty, entertaining, and incredibly sexy. The characters were charming and the plot was filled with all kinds of back-stabbing and dramatic moments. I really enjoyed Mendacious and I recommended you check it out.
